About Us

Frozen Cape Cod Bay

We live on Cape Cod, along with Holly, our Golden Retriever. Sometimes things freeze up. We can’t do much about the weather, but we can do plenty about education and -- get results.

Results First is really me, Les Loomis, with occasional help from Hal Williams, retired president and senior fellow at The Rensselaerville Institute, a cool group called “the think tank with muddy boots”. I started teaching in the Peace Corps in Colombia, and ever since my commitment is to guide students and schools to greater success.

My work has mostly been in New York state and still is: a teacher at East High in Rochester and at Brighton, the high school principal at Fayetteville-Manlius, and for 21 years, the superintendent at Bethlehem. While I was president of the NYS Superintendents Council and dean of the Superintendents Academy, I was a part of many Commissioner’s Advisory Council meetings where the talk about building capacity was just that -- talk.

At Results First, we act - to build capacity and success. First with Get to Great and now with Results First, I’ve worked with over 50 school districts in New York - from Buffalo to Albany, Glens Falls to Binghamton, urban, suburban, and rural. In 2016-17 Results First is working with 9 school districts.
